We completely enjoyed our stay at Hotel Le Mouton Blanc. As other reviewers have noted, nothing beats staying on the island after the throngs leave. Yes, it is a challenge to get to one's room, lug suitcases up stairs, but, hey, where's your sense of adventure?!? We booked a "triple" room on Expedia to find we had a massive room with two double beds, a view of the bay from one window, and a full-on view of the abbey from the opposite window. Remarkable. Breathtaking. No words. I literally sat on the windowsill writing postcards and observed people walking up and down the labyrinth of stairs. No intrusion into the privacy of the room, though - bliss!!
Our room was in the annex building noted by other reviewers, but again, I have nothing but positive things to say. It was a special room. The front desk provides a sweet picture guide that is numbered to reach this building.
And speaking of the front desk, they were kind, friendly, and helpful every single time we interacted with them. Upon check-in (where one of our rooms was actually ready early!), calling on our behalf to secure a walk through the bay to the island of Tombelaine (when the tide recedes), and finally upon checkout. Fabulous.
Housekeeping was gracious as well. The only hiccup we encountered was with the wifi in the annex building. It was available from the main building, so we simply went down there if we needed access. It did work the second night from our room. But, seriously, I don't travel to places like Mont-St-Michel to go online - I go there to unplug!!!
Yes, there are the sounds of the island - sea gulls, church bells, etc. - that rouse you from your sleep, but at the end of the day, I remember the serenity of the island early morning and early evening - having it all to ourselves - with the majestic views of the abbey - our "sandcastle"!! Special memories!!
P.S. Look into the bay walk --- HIGHLY recommended!!!!!
